Timpte Trailers has released a new remote-control trap opening system and a new combo trailer.

The Easy Flow hydraulic remote control trap opening system uses two hydraulic cylinders on each side of the trap frame. The operator can open the trap from the side of the trailer, the cab, or with an RF wireless standard remote. Electrical connectors and a radio receiver are enclosed inside a control box to provide them from the elements.

The company also unveiled its new combo/tender hopper multi-purpose grain hopper trailer.

The trailer includes a removable auger system that is designed to be removed after fertilizer season to create a conventional grain hopper. It dispenses material up to 4,000 lbs. per minute, said Timpte.
